Viega

Siemens PLM Software solutions help Viega keep pace with rapidly growing requirements for maintaining product inventory

Since its founding in 1899, Viega has grown into a global consortium with over 4,000 employees, evolving into one of the leading manufacturers of installation technology for industrial, commercial and residential projects. The company’s range of 17,000 products includes piping systems as well as pre-wall and drainage technology. This always-available inventory illustrates not only the exemplary accessibility of products, but also farreaching system competence. The majority of the company’s products is manufactured at its four production sites in Germany: Attendorn-Ennest and Elspe (Westphalia), Grossheringen (Thuringia) and Niederwinkling (Bavaria). Two other production plants in the United States and China serve their local markets.

“The seamless integration and intuitive user interface of our CAQ solution assures a high degree of acceptance for IBS QMS at Viega.”

Ralph Schneider, Quality Manager, Viega GmbH & Co. KG
